This is the latest Interrogator log
Sync_LW3D00F8_WF0RXXWPGRHM78267.xml (10.3 KB)
Short version: Fords website showed I needed to update my Sync from 2.2 to 3.0 which eventually completed OK, after the installation the Sync was very laggy (10 seconds to register a buttom push) even after a Master Reset so I upload the log file to their website which then said I needed to update my maps which it wasn’t saying originally so I figure this is why my sync is laggy, because the software is up to date but the maps now are not. No matter what I did I couldn’t get the maps to install as it would start the installation then prompt me for a key cycle and every time I cycled it or left it overnight or whatever it would always start the installation again and again prompt me to key cycle so I left the USB stick in the vehicle permenantly for 2 weeks or so so it would keep trying to update itself and hopefully eventually work. This is when I noticed that with the USB inserted (trying to update) the Sync was not at all laggy, it was fine, but when the USB was removed it would instantly lag again to the point it was unuseable.
Now I did say on Discord that the map update did eventually get past the key cycle and did complete but I may have been wrong, i’m sure it said installation complete but now it’s asking me to key cycle again. Can you tell from the log file if the maps have indeed updated?
This is what I see on my screen right now:
Sync 3 software version: 3.0
Gracenote version: 220.127.116.117 (EU-0010)
Navigation maps version: EU 4 15
Sync serial number: LW3D00F8
So as it is my Sync is so laggy it is completely unuseable unless I leave the USB stick in the vehicle with either the Interrogator on it or the Map update on it so its constantly trying to install something in the background, the second I take the USB stick out its laggy again.
For simplicity’s sake I just leave the interrogator on the USB stick in the vehicle to prevent the lag because it throws up less prompts and is quicker than having the map update on the stick constantly trying to install. It’s so odd that I have to have that on the stick and in the vehicle in order to prevent the really bad lag.
